ABOUT THE FILM:
After suffering a life-altering spinal cord injury, dancer Kelsey Peterson lost both function and sensation from the chest down, essentially robbing her of her self-identities as an athlete and dancer. Alongside peers and allies in the spinal cord injury community, she seeks to answer the question “Who am I now?”
As she grapples with the ebb and flow of hope and acceptance, Kelsey talks to researchers and meets with people who belong to this community and who help give her the strength and the will to return to dance. When a cutting-edge clinical trial surfaces, it tests her expectations and her faith in the possibility of a cure, forcing her to evaluate the limits of her recovery—in body and spirit.
If you enjoy the film—and/or it leaves you with burning questions you’d like to discuss—please join us directly afterward for a special interactive live conversation with these experts:
Teri Wagner—Executive/Artistic Director, Spoke N Motion Dance
Yesenia Torres—Sexuality after Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) educator, author, and advocate
